New Jingle all the Way Challenge .......


Over at The Ribbon Girl Blog we have a new monthly challenge which will begin on 25th of every month and inspire you to get all your crafting organised for Christmas.

It certainly got me in the mood for making Christmas cards and here is one I made yesterday and which I will enter into the Lili of the Valley Challenge 'aqua, white and glitter'

A Christmas card in aqua and white - the background paper was plain white card stamped with a Papertrey Ink snowflake stamp using hawaian shore ink to match the copics I used to colour in the gorgeous Lili of the Valley image.
I cut the circle and the scallop mat with a nestabilities die and I added some 22mm guipure lace.  The sentiment stamp was also from Papertrey Ink.  Plenty of stardust stickles were added to the wings, snowflakes and the scarf to make them stand out.

I used 30mm, 25mm and 13mm white mulberry roses plus mini rosebuds which also got a dusting of Stardust Stickles, then Berisford 25mm peacock blue satin ribbon plus a snowflake charm tied on with aqua Bakers Divine Twine which completed the card.  Roses, buds, ribbon, lace, twine and charm are all from Ribbon Girl.
------------------------------
Don't forget that the Ribbon Girl monthly colour challenge still has another week to run, so if you haven't entered yet, there's still time and I can't wait to see your Christmas projects - cards, knits, sewing, crochet, felt, anything you fancy - and of course if you use ribbons, buttons, lace or bling on it, then so much the better!
